Went here with my boyfriend. I love margaritas, and they have quite a selection, very delicious, but best of all, reasonably priced! The food was good, nothing spectacular, but well worth the price! I will definitely be returning.

I recently went to Fajitas and Ritas with a group of 7 people for a birthday. We had a very hard time making a reservation the day of the dinner with the waitstaff, who told us they didn't take reservations and we couldn't talk to a manager about it. We finally did get a manager on the phone who did... More

This was a unique combination between bar and restaurant: a tequila bar with great fajitas and margaritas, as the name would suggest. After a late flight landing in Boston, my boyfriend and I were famished and walked from our hotel in the Theatre district to hit up F&R just off Boston Common. We shared a large portion of steak and... More

Was back in Boston for a visit after a 12 year absence and decided to see if that Tex-Mex place was still there. To my delight it was. I brought the family in and we had a delicious meal. My kids are aged 3, 6,and 9 and you can tell that the friendly staff are used to children by the... More

Back in Boston again, and always look forward to a meal at Fajitas & 'Ritas. On a Thursday night, our 20 minute wait wasn't so bad, and we were lucky to find a seat at the bar to wait. Fajitas never disappoint and the straight up 'ritas are great. The only downfall is the fact that my coat continued to... More

You won't be fooled into thinking you're in the mission district in San Francisco, but the food I had was tasty (shrimp quesadilla and nachos) and the frozen mango margarita hit the spot. The decor is cheerful and the service was fine (the food also comes very quickly). It's a decent, inexpensive and quick meal downtown.

Walked by this restaurant yesterday and looked appealing enough to go in for lunch. Was seated quickly. Our server was courteous and prompt with our order. Chips and salsa were served and were just that, no more no less. We got the steak fajitas for 2 and they were very good. I felt the manager needed a little bit of... More

My first time here and I'm not dying to go back. The shared pitchers of margaritas (which was suggested by our server of course) could not even fill 3 glasses because there was SO much ice in the jar. We ended up having to order a few of these, just so we could each have a couple drinks. Probably cheaper... More

Been a fan of Fajita's & 'Ritas for a long time, and it never disappoints. Definitely worth a stop in. Salsa is tasty and not spicy - so great with kids. Gotta love the margaritas!

The frozen maragitas are sensational and cheap. I had 4 of them for like 20 bucks can't beat that. Mexican food was solid and renovations were a nice touch since last time I was there. Definately a good place for group of friends or co-workers. Great bar scene and atmosphere check it out.
